As Keith Olbermann pointed out: in 1996, Obama backed Lieberman during the Democratic primaries; Lieberman has endorsed John McCain in the 2008 presidential campaign; McCain campaigned for Lincoln Chafee in the 2006 elections; Chafee has now endorsed Obama for president. I like the symmetry. I can’t say I like to be reminded of the fact that Obama supported Lieberman in 1996. Damn you Keith – I was happy in my hero worship. Oh well – no one’s perfect.
